THE ROYAL ALLIANCE PERSPECTIVE
Whether you’re a wirehouse veteran ready to make the move, an independent advisor looking for greater support, or a commissioned advisor interested in transitioning to a fee-based practice, Royal Alliance offers you the freedom to run your practice as you see fit in a proactive, pro-advisor culture.
Over 45 Years of Commitment to Independent Financial Advisors
Since we launched our firm in 1969, we have been unconditionally committed as a firm to strengthening and supporting the advisors we serve. In fact, to ensure that you have the power you need and the right tools to get the job done we do something radical in this industry: we listen to you. Your input helps shape what we do and how we do it. And then if what we do can be improved, we won’t stop until exactly what’s needed is done. It’s a commitment.
The results reflect this approach. More than 2,000 advisors call Royal Alliance home with an average annual GDC in excess of $250,000 and a total of $60 billion in client assets under management. With an impressive 97% retention rate and an average tenure of 10.4 years, we find that when advisors find us, they stay and tend to stay for a long time. For nearly five decades, Royal has been the first choice for advisors.
When an advisor selects to affiliate with Royal Alliance, they tend to stay for a long time—on average for well over a decade and often to the end of their career.
Our advisors average over $250,000 in annual production and they like the strength and superior support they can count on at Royal Alliance.
We Put Our Advisors in Control with Better Tools & More Options
Your ability to excel in your practice is tied to having the right tools to get the job done. That’s why Royal Alliance is dedicated to developing sophisticated programs, technologies and guardrails necessary for success. These include a suite of solutions for business planning, streamlined offices, portfolio management, and a wide range of powerful resources integrated into one dynamic resource center.
And we put advisors in control by providing them with flexibility to run their business the way they want. We want you to do business your way. While many broker-dealers offer narrow definitions of what open architecture means to them, we are focused on what it means to you. We understand that you have a vision to take your already successful practice to an even better place. The bottom line is that you know the best way to manage your own business.
Our liberating “open architecture” approach is designed to maximize your flexibility and support so that it fits the way you want to do business.
Choose from a wide range of affiliation options and we’ll help ensure that you are in your comfort zone: Independent, Branch or RIA models.
Extraordinary Service for Exceptional Advisors & Offices
We never take our commitment to supporting advisors lightly. As a Royal Alliance advisor you can count on advanced technology, business-building support, learning opportunities, coaching and training, and extensive product listings. Our support begins at the moment you choose to join our team and continues throughout your career with us and even beyond. Now the industry standard, our succession and continuity programs help you reap the rewards of a job well done.
We are also confident that the financial professionals we serve enjoy the best of all worlds—big-firm resources with small-firm attention. That’s because we are part of one of the largest truly independent broker-dealer networks in the industry and yet have maintained a personal feel with a genuine open-door policy that encourages advisor input and helps shape the firm’s direction. In every way, Royal Alliance is advisor-centric.
